Area of Focus

  • Cancer stem cells and the cellular hierarchy within brain tumors

Summary of Research

Our research seeks to identify novel therapeutic strategies for brain cancer.  Brain tumor stem cells are thought to initiate brain tumors, drive their growth, and lead to tumor recurrence following treatment.  We isolate and interrogate brain tumor stem cells in order to identify novel therapeutics that target these cells and ultimately provide for new, effective treatments for brain tumors
